R-Truth worked for World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE) as K-Kwik from 1998 to 2002, winning the WWF Hardcore Championship title twice. After his release in 2002, he joined Jeff Jarrett's new promotion Total Nonstop Action Wrestling.
As Ron "The Truth" Killings, he won the NWA World Heavyweight Championship twice, being the first African-American wrestler to win the title. Also, he created the stable 3LiveKru with Konnan and BG James, winning the NWA World Tag Team Championship twice.
Toward the end of his TNA run, Killings won the TNA World Tag Team Championship with football player Adam Jones. Speaking on E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness, R-Truth talked about the title change at Drake Maverick’s wedding: “Let me tell you about that day: That was Sarah’s idea.
Oh my God, that was so funny. Sarah Stock, she was there, and she was like, ‘Well…’, because at first, I was gonna do a wedding dress and Vince said, ‘No. No wedding dress. That sounds like he’s trying to be funny and tell Truth just be funny, be himself’ and when he said that, I said, ‘Oh okay, cool.
I see the point. No wedding dress’, and, Sarah was like, ‘So what do you have on?’ I said, ‘I got on some black jeans.’ She said, ‘Well I have a suit coat. We ordered a suit coat for you’, and she [asked] what if I go with no shirt on, and I laughed and I said, ‘You know what? I didn’t think about that because I laughed and you said that…’ I said it’s kinda crazy because everybody else is dressed at the wedding right? And she said, ‘Yeah, but R-Truth would probably do it with no shirt on’. She said, ‘I have a purple tie."
